What is Psalm 83?A song. A psalm of Asaf: God, don't remain silent! Don't stay quiet, God, or still; because here are your enemies, causing an uproar; those who hate you are raising their heads, craftily conspiring against your people, consulting together against those you treasure. They say, "Come, let's wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Isra'el be remembered no more!" With one mind they plot their schemes; the covenant they have made is against you the tents of Edom and the Yishma'elim, Mo'av and the Hagrim, G'val, 'Amon and 'Amalek, P'leshet with those living in Tzor; (Selah) 8 Ashur too is allied with them, to reinforce the descendants of Lot. Do to them as you did to Midyan, to Sisra and Yavin at Vadi Kishon they were destroyed at 'Ein-Dor and became manure for the ground. Make their leaders like 'Orev and Ze'ev, all their princes like Zevach and Tzalmuna, who said, "Let's take possession of God's meadows for ourselves.” My God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff driven by the wind. Like fire burning up the forest, like a flame that sets the mountains ablaze, drive them away with your storm, terrify them with your tempest. Fill their faces with shame, so that they will seek your name, ADONAI. Let them be ashamed and fearful forever; yes, let them perish in disgrace. Let them know that you alone, whose name is ADONAI, are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83 (CJB)
What is the truth about Psalm 83?No one has a clear answer to the war of Psalm 83, the enigma Psalm. Bill has his opinions about Psalm 83, and so do I. Many experts have weighed-in on Psalm 83 to no avail. It is still to be determined.
My opinion: When an expert pushes the Rapture down your throat, always view them skeptically. The Rapture—ultimately in its nature—is anti-Semitic. Rapture-purists believe, “They leave this fallen earth just prior to God’s ‘wrath,’ then God punishes the ungodly, especially those persnickety Jews.” They generally preach anti-Torah Calvinism, with an extra dose of Sunday worship. They call people like messianics Heretics, while quoting Psalm 1, without realizing they intend to malign the Torah after they quote the verses. The easiest way to spot a counterfeit is to note their inclinations toward Yeshua, Israel and the Torah. As we approach the end of days, rejection of Torah’s eternality will be a quick way to discern who is for you, or against you.How blessed are those who reject the advice of the wicked, don't stand on the way of sinners or sit where scoffers sit! Their delight is in ADONAI's Torah; on his Torah they meditate day and night. Psalm 1:1-2 (CJB)
My Psalm 83 opinion: In a multi-leveled eschatological viewpoint, all the pieces must fit together. Each event must support the next event. (The Psalm 83 war won’t occur in a vacuum.)Please note who is leading the forces against Israel (the first two names listed). Jacobs’ brother Esau (Edom) and Isaac will foment, and lead the fight against Israel within a few years. Then, according to Daniel 11:36-45, the Beast will slaughter these Psalm 83 foes of Israel. The world will experience peace after he nullifies the secondary blessings that Israel’s Patriarchs gave these two sons. After eliminating Israel’s enemies, and the secondary recipients of any blessings that would occur if all of the Israelites would be eliminated.
If the primary and the secondary recipients are eliminated, HaShem’s promises are nullified. Thus, the Satan wins. Although this could potentially happen, it won’t happen.If the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad signals the end of days, expect distress. Over the next two years, expect the last four Seals of Revelation to open quickly. Pray that you are not deceived, for no one is exempt. Hold to your faith amidst wars, persecution, famine, disease, natural disasters, and earthquakes.
In 2016, after the Blood Moon Tetrad, expect events surrounding the Temple Mount area to force Edom and Ishmael to attack Israel en masse. Expect a quiet man named Mikha’el to lead an army against these forces. He will win, albeit temporarily. He will ultimately fail.Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. Shalom!
